Product Information


  零和綺羅的相遇,起源於一次問路。

  那時,在綺羅眼中的零,不過是個終日惹是生非、用情不專的花花公子,而對男人存有莫名恐懼的綺羅,壓根就不想跟零有絲毫牽扯,因此綺羅當場甚麼話也沒講,只是匆匆畫了一張地圖,隨即掉頭就走。

  綺羅沒發現,那張地圖原本是自己畫的「母與子」的草稿;綺羅當然也不會知道,這幅「母與子」深深的打動了渴望母愛的零。因此,當零因為留級而成為綺羅的同班同學,當下就迫不及待想要更了解這個別人看來「自閉」的女孩,甚至自告奮勇成為綺羅繪畫的模特兒。

  對於這個風評不佳的「痞子」,綺羅一開始是抗拒且畏懼的;但是綺羅逐漸發現,越是深入了解零這個人,竟越是無法討厭這個外表冷漠、內心卻溫暖的「痞子」。特別是在一次綺羅被英文老師性騷擾的危急關頭,零居然冒著被退學的危險,將綺羅從老師的魔掌中拯救出來。從那一刻起,綺羅對零有了不一樣的看法。

  只是,零真的太受女孩子歡迎了,只要跟零走在一起,綺羅隨時都能感受到其他女孩不懷好意的目光;特別是晴美,這個有點跋扈、充滿英氣的零「前」女友,總是三番兩次找綺羅麻煩,甚至以讓綺羅「永遠不能畫畫」做為要脅。不過這次,綺羅並不需要靠著零前來搭救。「沒有了手,我還有腳可以畫畫,沒有了腳,我還可以用嘴畫畫…」連綺羅自己也不知道,是什麼原因讓自己生出如此巨大的勇氣。

  直到看見急忙奔來的零,綺羅才知道自己勇氣的來源,竟來自於對零的愛。而看到弱小又無助的綺羅,零疼惜的將綺羅擁在懷中,同時也確認了一件事---這個女孩,就是我想要一生守護的對象。兩人的愛情故事,因為這次事件而逐漸開展…

  然而,零不為人知的過去,卻在此時逐漸引爆,成為兩人感情最具殺傷力的地雷。

  由零口中,綺羅得知零與父親的感情並不好,嚴肅冷漠的零父一直想要操控零的一切,零的媽媽在死前更是百般叮嚀:「絕對不要相信那個男人說的任何一句話。」

  綺羅對零父子間的關係感到不解,因為綺羅曾與零父在美術館有過一面之緣。印象中,零父望著零肖像的表情是那麼的柔和可親,綺羅認為,他對零應該是充滿了愛與關心的。這兩種相互矛盾的印象,讓綺羅夾在零父子之間不知如何是好…

  此外,地雷的導火線,其實是由沙織---這個零唯一愛過的女孩所引爆。

  從沙織那裡,綺羅知道了零原本有個雙胞胎兄弟---聖。原本感情極佳的零與聖,卻因為沙織的出現而反目相向,最後,聖因為受不了沙織喜歡零的事實,而選擇跳樓結束自己的生命;零為聖的死自責不已,甚至因此住進精神病院療養了兩年。

  沙織的再次出現,再度揭開了零心底最深的傷口。只是沙織原本仍自信的認為:自己還是零的最愛,自己一定能填補零心中對於聖的缺憾;她想都沒想過,眼前這個貌不驚人的綺羅,早已取代了自己在零心目中的地位。「零需要的是寬廣的包容,而不是把他當成炫耀的玩具。」明瞭到此事的沙織,最後只得選擇黯然離去。

  眼看零逐漸從過去的陰影走出來,極其美麗又聰明的少年桐島的出現,又將零拉回黑暗的深淵。

  與零來自同一個療養院的桐島,因為一樁殺人事件而入院,在他接受治療的過程中,偷偷的從院方資料裡發現了一個與他極相似的靈魂,因此,桐島為尋覓零而來。但當他發現零因綺羅而逐漸掙脫過去,寂寞的桐島決定與象徵光明的綺羅較勁,他們互相拉扯著零----一個通往黑暗、一個邁向光明-----為了贏得勝利,桐島甚至挖掘出綺羅最不願面對的自閉根源-----年幼的綺羅曾經被自己的養父強暴。

  但是綺羅並未被擊潰,她已經擁有零交給她的勇氣。這一次,她決定面對自己。桐島萬萬沒料到自己會輸,而且輸的那麼慘!

  但他並非輸給綺羅,他輸的是零那渴望幸福、愛和光明的原始靈魂!零在綺羅的悲劇裡,反倒看到一切的渴望。

  零後來才知道,一直以來騷擾著他的那團黑影,並非自己的原罪,那只是一個恐懼幸福的幻影,只要他不再相信它的存在,一切便無可畏懼。

  他帶著綺羅的愛,再次奔馳賽車場------車子翻覆的那一剎那,他又看見了聖,但是,他堅決的告訴聖-------我們將會重逢,但不是此刻,因為,我終於擁有了世界上最美好的事物-----愛。

Far from Masterpiece Customer Review Rated Bad 2 - 2 out of 10
What I thought would be masculine entertainment, turned out anything but. If you read manga, there is no way you picture Vic and Barbie as the leads. Vic Chou does not have the masculinity Ling in manga, much less rough. He is cuddly, far from frightening. Barbie Hsu on the other hand is. And she played the autism character the meek meekly girl. She is unconvincing, thus awful. But still Vic did a good job playing the young twins.
Cai Yu Xun directing is not that impressive, the speeding motorcycle seems fake, the cut between Vic and stunt is obvious. The only good stunt is the suddenly almost choked Ling by the painting. Cai can consider to direct horror movie.Not worth your time. But the opening song sung by both Vic and Barbie is good, so you probably consider to buy the soundtrack

Meteor Mars Garden Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
I watched MARS like 2 months after watching MG then 2 months later MG2. After seeing all 3, I got an idea for MG3. Picture the opening scene of MG3, Jerry and Barbie returns to Barcelona for Honeymoon. One day both decides to visit the local race track and then both see what appears to be Lei showing up on the TV screen as the winner of the race. After tracking Vic down, only to find out its not Lei, its Lin. Then all hell broke loose after they see Lin's wife. Two Vics (Lei and Lin) and two Barbies. Turns out Lin not only had a twin bro but they were triplets w/Lei and Barbie are twins. Then to confirm all their sibling relationships, they all head back to Taipei and Lin/Barbie joins F4 and Barbie. Call it Meteor Mars Garden. lol. Seriously though, I thought Mars was an excellent film with profound meanings.
